One needs no strange spiritual faith to worship the earth. 
October 8, 1872: British writer John Cowper Powys continued to produce work into his nineties, but he steadfastly rejected modernity—no typewriters for him! He also disliked television, telephones and cars. The author of A Glastonbury Romance was born in Derbyshire, 141 years ago today.

I'm PUBLISHED~ sort of : )

I collect milk glass and adore your salad plates! I would have been jumping UP & DOWN to have found them myself. You will find many uses for them. One suggestion~ weave a ribbon, twine, etc through the holes and tie a bow~perhaps with a sprig of your bittersweet! I love what you do! Thank you~
Thanks for the idea Cynthia. I’ve seen that done on cake stands. Would be a great idea for the holidays!

Save a life~

Whoever saves one life, saves the world entire. 
October 7, 1935: Happy 78th birthday, Thomas Keneally! The Australian novelist walked into a leather goods store owned by Holocaust surviver Poldek Pfefferberg, who told him about being rescued by Oskar Schindler; the encounter inspired a book which became Oscar-winning film Schindler's List.

Isn't that just a beautiful thought~ and in the work I just doesn't seem to be enough.  I'll work until my life is over, shairng what I know, how I know it, and acceting the outcome regardless of the attempt.  We are each so very different~

My Daddy~

Hi Dad,
  The hummers left one week ago today and the ducks are flying by in the V formation~ all speical things that remind me of your "favorite" time of the year~  I 'm grateful for our hummers that keep us company all throught the summer, each time wondering if it were you just checking in, staying close.
  You left us 8 months ago today and it feels like years.  I wonder what that means?  My feet have not touched ground firmly~ my life has changed.  In gratitude, you are with Mom and Boo, this I know~
  I miss you Dad, I miss all of you, and still know that I am the luckiest girl on the face of the earth having had you as my Daddy, and Mom, and my baby sister Booley.  What's it like there?  Happy and light I bet : )  Take care until.... xo, Pooh
